After working with Shoojit Sircar and Juhi Chaturvedi in one of her best films, Piku, Deepika Padukone had shown interest in working with the duo yet again. That is why when rumours of the search of a leading lady for the duos next film, October, were doing the rounds, Padukone’s name was on the forefront. But turns out she isn’t doing the film finally. She has either said no to it, or the director-writer pair didn’t offer her the film, considering the contribution of the female character to the script.
“The film revolves around Varun’s character. Primarily, the heroine’s role isn’t too lengthy in terms of screen time. So, I don’t think Deepika will be taking it up,” said a spokesperson.
